I would like you to go everywhere and search in all places, but you will find nothing that will comfort you and fill your heart with hope, joy, peace and calmness, except Jesus Christ alone. Nothing is sweeter than Jesus, no speech is pleasant in comparison to His, and no words are more tender than His own. His presence is delightful, and being surrounded by Him is pleasurable, and His charm is enchanting. He is full of peace and His comfort is soothing. How sweet it is when He visits the heart, the spirit: in there He calls His beloved. Those who tasted His sweetness once will never enjoy any other sweetness but Him, for He captures the intellect by His pleasant sweetness.
The heart desires Him for His tender voice – Jesus is the source of eternal life.
Jesus is the giver of blessings and true tastiness.
Jesus overfills the heart with joy and meekness.
Jesus is ‘Emmanuel’, God with us.
Jesus is the heavenly nourishment and spiritual food.
Jesus is the tree of life: whoever eats of it shall not die, but live forever.
Jesus is the sweet drink: whoever drinks from it will never thirst.
His Name is weapon in time of war.
He is strong shield that prevents dangers and hardships.
He is the ray of light that illuminates the darkness.
He is the ointment of comfort in the disasters of life and its bitter pain.
He is the staff of comfort in your old age.
He is a fortress protecting you in your young age.
He is an illuminated ship of grace upon which the children ride.
He is the physician and medicine for all maladies.
He is the helper of the helpless and comforter of those in sorrow.
Everything is vain, unless Jesus is its beginning and its end.
Vain is any worship unless it is ascribed for Jesus and Him truly.
Vain are all sermons unless their goal is Jesus.
Vain are reading, studying and talking unless Jesus is the center of it all.
Vain are sweetness, calmness and comfort, unless Jesus alone is sought.
Vain is everything unless Jesus is the core.
Vain is every act unless the Name of Jesus is repeated without ceasing.
If Jesus did not enter the heart, it becomes hard and stiff.
